About Heather Hamilton

Hi! I'm Heather, the A&E Editor for TNL. I like sappy romance music, long walks on the beach, watching Doctor Who... Oh, wait, this isn't a personal ad. Whoops. In any case, I love my job, and my little corner of The Paper. The art, music, dance, and theatre scenes are always so interesting to me, and I adore taking the time to explore and write about them. I feel that they are an under appreciated part of society, despite how important they are TO society. How did the Greeks introduce moral concepts to one another and debate them? Through plays. See kids, they ARE important! If you have any ideas for me, please feel free to get in touch with me and pitch your angle; I am more than happy to step outside of the box and report on something different and new!
